Advice for Executors and Solicitors

If you are an Executor and/or are administering a Will that includes a gift to St Mary’s Hospice, we understand that this can be a difficult and stressful process and we wish to offer as much practical support as we are able.

We have included some useful information below.

Please contact or telephone 01229 580305 for any advice or assistance.

Paying a Gift
